Business Change Academy were chosen as the preferred training provider by Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) to help in laying a strong business analysis foundation.
Two in-house presentations of Business Change Academy progressive three-day IIBA® endorsed Business Analysis Fundamentals course ran back-to-back in October 2015, with a broad range of delegates in attendance, including business analysts, project managers and quality assurance analysts.
“The client, in seeking to improve business analysis maturity in the organisation, recognised that the first step was to build awareness by providing fundamental training on the subject. Moving forward, Business Change Academy’s business analysis curriculum is the foundation upon which a larger change management strategy and competency model for Dubai Islamic Bank will be established,” says Joe Newbert, MD of Business Change Academy
According to Mohamed Bray, course lecturer and Practice Manager at Saratoga, business analysis is a discipline and skill that if not firstly understood, and then practiced and improved upon regularly, will only let the business analyst, their team and project down.
“The Business Analysis Fundamentals course sets the foundation for future learning and growth into this role. Competency within the bank will improve the maturity of business analysis organisational practices,”says Bray.
The course challenges many points of contention around the scope of business analysis and the more established practice of project management. The value add to business analysts is that they leave this course with the view that their careers have much more scope. The traditional business analyst to project management career map now changes fundamentally,” says Bray.
Dubai Islamic Bank delegate course reviews were positive. “With the knowledge obtained we are able to analyse key business requirements. We are now in a position where we can better support our stakeholders, ” said Tarek Ibrahim, Project Manager.
“My objective to learn the basics of business analysis was met and far exceeded, ” said Umar Mukthar, Senior Manager.
“Attendees of Foundation in Business Analysis leave enriched with the practical understanding that defines the business analyst’s critical role in a modern organisation, ” advises @newbert. The course covers the broad business analysis process and systematic principles that should be applied throughout a project, including the pre-project phase that comprise strategic business analysis.
